Raised in Orlando, Essie Golden moved to New York City to pursue her dreams of fashion.
Since launching her career, Essie has become a sought after plus-size model, body positive
advocate, blogger and trusted voice within the plus-size community. She loves using her
platform to inspire and encourage other women, ultimately boosting their confidence. After
all, she learned to embrace and love her own body when modeling, and was ultimately
inspired to create the Golden Confidence Pool Party.
Essie co-founded #GoldenConfidence, is the voice behind the Golden Confidence Pool Party
and will always be an advocate for others.
